ELLsf is a performance-based art practice conceived by Jason Campbell (ell) in 2015 and co-produced with Sam Holtzman (last saturn) until 2020. The work produced leverages the fervor of a talented cast of artists and designers, all interested in working across media and discipline, rooted in architectural discourse.
Each project begins with a pointed set of ideas and perspectives. Over the span of public discourse and rigorous study, we work to deepen our understandings or to completely unseat them. Our workflow typically begins with a primary artist with whom we develop a conceptual premise for a 3-4 mo. exhibition. We then work with extraordinary artists from different facets of design [visual, culinary, fashion, performance, ... ] to respond to the current body of work.
